all! Iíve been away on
vacation since mid-May and am still working on catching up on GH
episodes I missed. So since
it will probably be a little while before Iím prepared to comment on
current stories, Iíve decided to give you something to keep you busy
in the meantime.
honor of every high school seniorís favorite month of the year, I
have, for your perusal, my list of Class Personalities.
I took the categories directly from an old yearbook (though
before Iím done I may add one or two of my own) and will just be
giving you my off-the-cuff opinion on who fits the description at this
moment in time, going into the past would make this impossible since
nearly everyone could fit in each category I suspect.
This is obviously very subjective, so donít get all bent out of
shape if you donít like my choices!!
In fact, Iíd be happy to hear your choices for any or all of
the categories and if I get enough responses on them I will post the
most popular ones next time I write, so you can all have your say too.
in mind, I am talking about the characters and not the actors here.
But in the interest of fairness, I will disclose as I go where my
own name showed up in my senior yearbook so no one can accuse me of
picking on their favorite characters without being able to take it
General Hospital Class (Cast??) Personalities 2002
Likely to Succeed:
Well, Helena, of course! She
hasnít been completely unsuccessful at anything, in my opinion.
She will always land on her feet and keep on going.
Threat to Society:
TPTB are just begging to have Maxie fit in this category but
sheís not even a blip on my radar.
So Iím going to go with Carly on this one.
She is the one person everyone in town believes could do just
about anything and thatís a threat alright.
Gotta go with Felicia on this because I canít picture anyone
else on the show being able to pull off jumping up and down in a
cheerleading uniform. If
nothing else, she is peppy! Disclosure:
I was a cheerleader, if memory serves it was for one year, in
high school. I quit because I just never got the hang of the peppy factor.
I never looked quite happy enough I donít think.
Elton. Though Big
Alice and Reggie are close seconds.
Andreas looks the most helpful to me, no doubt about that.
Oh, letís see, who could it possible beÖummm, COURTNEY,
maybe? When Mike asked AJ
how he would like it if Courtney knew what he was doing, AJ all but said
ďOh, Mike, your daughterís too dumb to believe thatĒ.
Iím still pulling for her to wake up and rock AJís world by
removing herself and her support from his life just in time for him to
realize he has got to have her!
Sonny, I canít help it. Disclosure:
I showed up in this category Ė it was the only nice one I
showed up in.
Carly. Long distance
swimming, bluff diving, walking untold distances to get to her funeral,
Sonny AND Zander climbingÖhardly being out of breath after that
initial acrobatic sex with Sonny Ė thereís your winner.
Well, Liz and Kristina are already giving their acceptance
speeches, Iím sure, but Iím going with Helena on this one too. Everyone knows the most likely to succeed and the class brain
gotta be the same person Ė thatís just how it is.
Three-way tie on this one. Leslie,
due to her ever smiling face even though sheís been relegated to
full-time babysitter. Andreas,
due to his uncomplaining ďYes, MadameĒ response to everything.
Elton, due to his ability to turn everything he encounters into
Liz would be an obvious choice here, but I donít like her much
and besides what has she painted lately, huh?
So Iím voting Michael. His
card for Sonny was a work of art and was given more scenes and even some
shots all itís own Ė Lizís junk never got that and that says
Elton, heís who you want at your next party.
Ok, youíve got the
obvious which are Lucas and Lulu who are quiet because they basically
donít exist. Then
youíve got Audrey and Leslie who used to have lives to talk about, but
now they prop up someone else in the scene.
Then you have Leticia who I think is the character we actually
see the most but doesnít say much.
But Iím going to put Kristina here because in my perfect world
she will be really quiet, really soon (see next segment, below).
Oh, Stavros, hands down.
It must be Liz because she must have a back up somewhere to be
able to have that attitude and still be walking around upright.
Luke and Laura, no discussion allowed on that one.
First to Marry:
Gia and Nik. Something to do with not being able to testify, Iím sure.
Those two were always hanging out with the wrong crowd, Iím not
of course. Just ask her.
Class Flirt (
Male): Stavros, was
there anyone he didnít stand up and salute for?
(Female): Carly has
probably flirted with the most men lately.
Though I think if we saw more of Amy she would probably win.
Alexis, I canít picture her getting married anytime soon.
Disclaimer: I was
class bachelorette, mostly for the same reason I chose Alexis for this
category. A little hard on
men, a lot distrustful of men, keeping everyone at a distance.
Oddly, I believe I may have been one of the first to get married
though so we were all surprised on that one.
My charming husband managed to change my mind about quite a few
Jason, canít picture him ever getting married.
Poor Amy, Kristina done stole your one claim to fame.
having to admit to this given that I just put Kristina in this category!
In my defense, it wasnít that I talked to much (it really
wasnít!) it was that I had a smart mouth according to a few of my
teachers Ė but I guarantee, the class would have never gotten through
Chemistry or Trigonometry without me to lighten it up a bit.
(Male): Sonny Ė never
once thought his outfit was all wrong.
Variety wouldnít hurt him but canít fault his dress code.
(Female): Helena Ė
never thought her outfit was all wrong either.
Now, on to my
ďLast Will and TestamentsĒ to our beloved characters. Again
subjective and again, Iíd be happy to hear yours.
And, no, Iím not really going anywhere.
Just pretend Iím graduating out of GH and this is what I, in my
all-knowing retrospect, would like to leave my fellow PCíers.
Last Will and Testament to:
The deed to the Q mansion purely because Iím sick of hearing
Monica talk about ďherĒ house.
Enjoy it Eddie.
Because Iím feeling nice, I leave you a real female friend that
will help you see the right ways to get the life you want. If that doesnít pan out I leave you another Lexus, a bluff
and a scene that really upsets you.
A nanny for that pesky Lucas.
So he will no longer be constantly under foot and stealing your
Condoms Ė what else? Oh,
and real body guards and a security systemÖ
A job out in the real world where we can see you.
Lots of paint, brushes and canvas along with a studio door that
locks from the outside. The
first person you unfairly mouth off to gets the key and will let you out
when they think youíve learned your lesson.
You better hope itís not Carly.
You will be taken over by one Miss Richards. Then you will be involved in a teen story that is not over
the top and annoying.
A very nice funeral.
Peace and quiet once the funeral is over.
A big juicy hospital story with a woman on the side.
Your old personality back.
More scenes with Roy, and adventure galore.
Flea shampoo, a reason to wear a suit once a month (Iíll figure
out the reason later, just wear it)
I have nothing for you man.
Sorry, canít help you.
The inability to ever again fly in (or fly to) another exotic
Nine lives, come on back.
Carly. You know you
still want her.
The ability to be a formidable opponent for Sonny but with a soft
side for the ladies, Iíve got plans for you.
Sorry hon, but you will be kicked out of the campfire girls or
whatever that little group is and you will spend some time with your
father. You will learn his
philosophy in life so you can carry on the Spencer name with pride
because Lucky ainít gonna do it the way heís going these days.
More drinkers, a little music now and then.
You serve no purpose unless you count yourself as a playground
for Kristina (and sheís dead) so bye, bye.
Scoobie spray and then ÖStefan.
I could probably go on with these all day but Iím out of time for now. As I said, feel free to send me yours Ė Iíd love to read
them. I will return with a
regular column when I get all caught up Ė at this point I am watching
current shows and past shows all out of order so I canít possible
relay my opinions in any way that will make sense!
Itís coming though, I promise.
It was exciting to come back from vacation and visit the message
boards to see people discussing things and being excited about where
things are going Ė itís very heartening, isnít it?
Even if we donít like it all, itís finally getting us talking
again! That makes me very
